    ObamaCare Is HAMMERING Middle Class Americans

    We've all seen the reports of insurance companies cancelling people's health insurance policies and offering them Obamacare policies at double, and even Tripple what they were paying before.

    My monthly premium was $196 in late 2009 before the first, Obamacare provisions took affect in 2010. A comparable Obamacare "bronze" policy will cost me $569 per month beginning in January.

    When you consider that that "bronze" policy has a higher deductable and annual out-of-pocket than my cancelled policy, Mr. Obama has effectively TRIPPLED my premium.

    Mr. Obama has given me options, however:

    If I quit my 2 jobs and sit at home watching daytime soaps every day like my brother in law did, I can get an Obamacare "subsidy". My brother in law got one that allows him to get an Obamacare "gold" policy for about 1/8 the cost of what my "bronze" policy would cost me.

    That is "fair", by Mr. Obama's reasoning.

    I could also join a "labor union", whose members were core Obama supporters but, like everyone else with a job, they HATE Obamacare and will likely get a sweet deal exemption from Mr. Obama. Like congressmen, unions are fine with obamacare, as long as THEY don't have to get clobbered by it like the rest of us middle class americans.

    I won't be buying the Obamacare "bronze" package in january. I simply can't afford it, so I'll have to take my chances as one of the "newly un-insured" Americans under the new law.

    If I get seriously sick, maybe I can get on the Oprah Winfrey show and discuss bankruptcy. My brother in law never misses Oprah...

    .... and he doesn't have to worry about getting sick either.
